"ENJOY THE MAGIC, WITHOUT THE MYSTERY"
Many of us dream of owning a luxurious fish pond or water garden. Perhaps a Koi pond, Goldfish pond or maybe a simple, low maintenance backyard water feature for aquatic gardening. Maybe you'd like a tranquility pond where you can sit, relax and enjoy the calming sounds of the water.
Most of us put it off. There’s the high cost of a professional installation, or the daunting task of planning, building, and installing a yard pond yourself. There could be heavy equipment and a lot of dirt, or picks and shovels and a lot of work. And then there's the liner, the pump, the filter, the fountains... What to buy, where to get it, and will it work?
Today many of us live in densely populated urban areas, with only small yard, concrete patio, or a deck available to create our tranquility space.
NECESSITY REMAINS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION!
In 2004, single mom Kim and her son needed a bigger home for their favorite pet Koi, "A FISH CALLED MOLLY". When Kim couldn't find a pond to meet her needs, she set out to build an indoor koi pond of her own design.
Requests from friends and neighbors for beautiful goldfish ponds or aquatic gardens for themselves soon turned the project into a family business. They told us what they wanted, and we developed our pre-built pond kits to meet their needs.
Since 2006 Kim, her family and crew have been building and shipping Kim's 'Above Ground Pond Kits' to pond and water garden enthusiasts all over North America.
DESIGNED BY A WOMAN WITH WOMEN IN MIND
Kim wanted to create a pond kit that anyone could easily handle and assemble by themselves. A pond that did not require digging a hole in the ground, special tools or skills that could be set up easily on a patio, deck, indoors or out in the yard.
PRE-BUILT, JUST REASSEMBLE AND ADD WATER
It will take you longer to add the water, than to set up your pond!
Each pond kit is pre-built, taken apart, packed into boxes and shipped to your home. You simply re-assemble the interlocking frame like a little log house, drop in the preformed pond liner, insert and tighten 12 screws into pre-drilled holes to attach the benches. Place the submersible pump into the pond, and add water one time with a garden hose. The water re-circulates, so no plumbing or permanent water lines are required.

KIM'S PONDS COME COMPLETE WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED
We use only high quality materials to build your pond.
Our first four years were spent displaying our ponds at 64 Trade shows, speaking directly to thousands of pond enthusiasts. With their input and recommendations we use only high quality components that are proven to do the job.
Interlocking western red cedar
frame, pre-cut & fully finished with a high quality weather proofing wood stain. (Interlocking cedar frame stacks together like a little log house.)
Pre-built benches that slide into place on the frame provide seating. (Fasten with the 12 screws and screwdriver included.)
A high quality, energy efficient fully submersible "Quiet One" magnetic drive pond pump, 3
mfg. warranty. (Uses 110v, with re-usable foam pre-filter, and 3 fountain styles.)
Pre-cut foam ground pad (drops into the frame to protect the liner).
Photo set up instructions and Kim's complete easy set up and pond care guide. (30 pages of aquatic gardening and fish care tips for a low maintenance, beautiful pond.)
People like you determined the sizes we build at Kim’s Ponds.
We build several different sized above ground pond kits and a partial in-ground pond kit. Each size is the result of requests from customers. Our 60, 100, 165 and 200 gallon ponds are sized from requests for a pond sized to fit your space on patios, decks, or indoors. Our 300 and 425 gallon pond kits have deeper water, offering better habitat for fish and some aquatic plants. The wall pond fits up against a wall or fence for those narrow tight spaces. And for those willing to dig, our 600 gallon pond, with the liner extending into the ground, provides water depths over 3 feet, for larger fish or more extreme climates.
Our 60 gallon pond, at 51” x 45” at the outside widest points and 16” high is often requested by townhouse and condo owners who want a small water garden for their patio, deck, or sunroom.
Our Wall Pond, at 59” across the back and extending 31” out from the wall and 16” high is perfect for those narrow or tight spots indoors, on patios, or on the deck.
Our 100 gallon pond, at 64” x 55” at the outside widest points and 16” high is the number one choice for residential homes on city lots for patios, decks, or a garden in the yard.
Our 165 gallon pond is the same 64” x 55” frame dimensions as the 100 gallon, only higher at 23”. The extra height and water provides a better habitat for some aquatic plants or larger goldfish, still contained inside this compact frame.
Our 200 gallon pond, at 82” x 72” at the outside widest points and 16” high is the choice for many who want a yard sized pond to create backyard water features or aquatic gardens.
The 300 and 425 gallon ponds use the same 82” x 72” frame as the 200 gallon.
Our 300 gallon pond is 21” high, first created for customers who liked the 7’ by 6’ dimensions, but preferred that the benches be taller for more comfortable seating. The extra water depth is very popular with aquatic gardeners who grow large varieties of water plants, and those with Koi or more goldfish.
Our 425 gallon pond contains 30 inches of water in the 7 foot by 6 foot frame. This large all above ground pond kit is popular with people who have limited space, can’t or don’t want to dig, and need larger water volume to house their favorite Koi, goldfish, or deep water aquatic plants.
Our 600 gallon pond still has the cedar frame, but requires some digging, as the liner extends down into the ground inside the interlocking frame. The result is 3 foot deep water that drops straight down inside from the top of the frame. This design discourages herons and raccoons who like to wade into ponds, but don’t like to step off a ledge!
